"War...What Is It Good For?"

I really love "Seinfeld," particularly lately where Elaine has to suck up to a Russian writer for her job at Pendant Publishing. He's completely bitter and angry--the old Soviet stereotype--and so Elaine decides to do cheap talk, including a fabricated piece of trivia Jerry made up: "Did you know that the alternate title 'War and Peace' was 'War...What Is It Good For?'" You had to have seen it, and "Seinfeld" fans will know what I'm talking about.

Anyone else enjoy the humor in "Seinfeld"?

"He had lived through an age when men and women with energy and ruthlessness but without much ability or persistence excelled. And even though most of them had gone under, their ignorance had confused Roy, making him wonder whether the things he had striven to learn, and thought of as 'culture,' were irrelevant. Everything was supposed to be the same: commercials, Beethoven's late quartets, pop records, shopfronts, Freud, multi-coloured hair. Greatness, comparison, value, depth: gone, gone, gone. Anything could give some pleasure; he saw that. But not everything provided the sustenance of a deeper understanding." - Hanif Kureishi, Love in a Blue Time

Loved that show.

Sometimes the most powerful thing you can do for someone is to just tell them to fuck off. I am told to fuck off rather a lot by these three gentlemen.

Seinfeld is my favorite show ever! I watch it every night at 11 P.M., followed by Leno. How much funnier can it get?

You'd be surprised, Wanderer, my boy. You know how long it took me to find a fellow "Seinfeld" fan here at college? I was a junior when I was finally successful. Of course, I live in a weird place anyway.
